The decoys, jammers, and chaff had been designed around the assumption that the Soviet ABM system(s) would be ZEUS-style threats. When hard data became available on the A-135 (ABM-1 GALOSH) system, in the words of one of the engineers who worked on the program: “they [the chaff] were all cut to the wrong frequencies, they [the decoys] were all too small to have been seen by these low frequency radars and they [the re-entry vehicles] were spaced improperly to accommodate the large yield weapons effects ranges of the big warheads. So other than that everything was just fine!”
